I take dex on Friday night before I go to bed. That way, I can sleep through some of the first side effects I experience, like the sweating. I feel very speedy and headachey on Saturday. By Sunday, I’m winding down. On Monday I’m usually so tired that it’s hard for me to stay awake. I was taking a nap this afternoon, and became annoyed by my cat. She was crying and swatting at me. I tried yelling at her to leave me alone, but she ignored me and kept on. There was a reason. She had brought me a lizard and left it beside me while I slept. I get really creeped out by lizards.
